I have a simple philosophy: ‘Do good, and good will come to you.
Music is my life, and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
My music is a reflection of my emotions and experiences.
Every song has a story, and it’s my job as a singer to convey that story to the audience.
I believe in constantly learning and improving, both as a musician and as a person.
Music has the power to heal and bring people together.
The best way to connect with people is through music.
For me, singing is like meditation. It helps me stay grounded and focused.
I always try to put my heart and soul into every song I sing.
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share my music with the world.
Music is a universal language that can bring people of all backgrounds together.
Singing is not just a profession for me; it’s a passion.
I believe in taking risks and trying new things in my music.
I draw inspiration from my life experiences and the people I meet.
I want my music to inspire and uplift people.
The joy of singing is in creating something beautiful out of nothing.
I don’t think of myself as a celebrity; I’m just a regular person who happens to sing for a living.
I try to stay humble and grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way.
My goal is to create music that people will remember for years to come.
I believe that every song has a unique identity, and it’s my job to bring that identity to life.
I am always striving to improve my vocals and learn new techniques.
My music is a reflection of my soul.
I believe in the power of hard work and dedication.
The beauty of music is that it can evoke emotions and memories in a way that words cannot.
I try to keep my music honest and authentic.
I am grateful to my fans for their unwavering support and love.
Singing is a form of expression that allows me to connect with people on a deeper level.
I want to continue growing as an artist and pushing the boundaries of my music.
I believe that music has the power to change the world.
I am constantly inspired by the incredible talent and creativity of other musicians.
I am grateful for the opportunities that have come my way, but I know that there is always more to learn and achieve.
My music is a blend of my Indian roots and my love for different genres and styles.
I believe that music has the ability to transcend language and cultural barriers.
I am committed to using my platform to make a positive impact on the world.
I believe that music is a gift that should be shared with as many people as possible.
Singing is like a form of therapy for me; it helps me process my emotions and feelings.
I am always looking for ways to challenge myself and grow as an artist.
I believe that music has the power to inspire and uplift people, even in the darkest of times.
I want my music to be a source of comfort and joy for my listeners.
I am grateful for every opportunity that comes my way, and I never take my success for granted.
I am a simple man who comes from a village, and villagers like us speak our mind. Now, in the process, if unknowingly my words came across as disrespectful or insulting, then I am deeply sorry. I don’t want to hurt anyone.
At times, when I reach my saturation point, I go to some random place and throw my phone away.
I wanted to be someone who wanted to produce music, and here I am, and I’m happy about it.
When my voice breaks, it recovers automatically. I don’t do anything special to maintain my voice. I have a natural voice and don’t have to take care of it.
I like to compose, but only for myself. I write my own lyrics and compose the music around them.
My grandma’s into music. My mom is a singer. Even my sister is a much better singer than I am. So you could say music runs in the family.
I have always wanted to become a musician and a singer.
If someone is trying to skip the struggle – which is the creative job – our machines today, the technology that we have, can help the person, but it is only momentary. On the other hand, if you are creative, you have the skill, and you are hardworking, technology can only make you superior.
I am songwriter. I do compose the music of songs that I write in Bengali. But I’ve never thought of composing for a film. That’s a different art altogether.
I’ve always tried to avoid electronic music in India because whatever songs I got in the genre I didn’t really enjoy singing them – I didn’t like the arrangements.
Apart from work, whatever pending things I have to do, I do it in Murshidabad.
Singing for a documentary that benefits the underprivileged remains one of my biggest dreams.
I would not understand when people will tell me that ‘Tum hi ho’ has got more than 1 million views on YouTube. I was like, ‘How does it make a difference?’ Later, I would go to YouTube and see songs of Rihanna, Enrique etc. and would see their hits. Then I came to know the importance. Nowadays, you can judge from these sites how big is a sing.
Reality shows give a great platform to young singers, but kids shouldn’t be exposed to showbiz at a very young age.
In reality shows, you have to perform once and prove yourself, and after that, it is a process to prove yourself every day.
When I joined the music scene, a lot of big-ticket singers were not getting good work… It was a lean phase.
I still don’t have a car. I still travel by public transport. I take autos to travel to and fro for recordings.
When I’m not singing, I’m a lot of persons: I’m a producer. I’m a badminton player. I’m a writer. I’m a movie freak. I’m a documentary maker.
I’m bad in front of the camera. However, if someone gave me a small role in a film with two dialogues and one scene, I’d do it.
